I am using Ethereum wallet MetaMask chrome extension and I am connected to Ropsten test network. I am following the instructions from the book Mastering Ethereum: Building Smart Contracts and DApps book by Andreas Antonopoulos and Gavin Wood.

When requesting 1 ether from faucet I get the following error:

{"error":"[ethjs-query] while formatting outputs from RPC '{\"value\":{\"message\":\"Internal error\",\"code\":-32603}}'"}

The wallet seems to have plenty of ether available so I'm not sure what the exact issue is. Can someone please provide guidance? Thanks.

  • I'm still having the same issue even with the faucet.ropsten.be. Is this not working in 2020?

Don't make it so hard for you. Just use a working faucet. None of us can fix a problem with the faucet you mentioned.

Here is a working Ropsten Testnet Faucet:

  • for some reason, my address is always in its blacklist. It's really annoying May 7 at 8:01

Please can anybody help me? I don't know how to convert or send the tokens I got from the binance faucet to my wallet. Please help me with the step to step guide. Thanks
